We can all agree that an abortion is an undesirable outcome. We can all work together to prevent unplanned or unwanted pregnancies.

  1. Prevention is the key: we need to focus our efforts on preventing unplanned pregnancies.

    1. Strengthening Family Values:

      1. Higher Family income: values start with the family; parents need an adequate income so that they have time to be parents and involved community members.

      2. Higher Individual income: higher income levels correlate with lower rates of unplanned pregnancies.

      3. Education level: higher education levels correlate with lower rates of unplanned pregnancies.

    2. Fixing health care: all women need access to health care and contraceptive services.

  2. Adoption: make adoption more accessible and affordable.

  3. Sanctity of Life: conversations regarding the sanctity of life should include, in addition to abortion:

    1. High infant mortality rates in the US (almost double most other developed nations).

      1. So, part of the conversation should be fixing health care in the US.

    2. High childhood poverty rates in the US (near highest rate among developed nations).

      1. So, part of the conversation must be higher wages for US workers.

  4. A woman should be able to end a pregnancy in circumstances where her life or the life of the baby are threatened, or in cases of rape or incest.

  5. The political parties must stop using abortion as a political weapon against one another.
